When I started making this recipe, my intention was to make a big pavlova pie. "It can't be that hard! It's just a base of meringue, whipped cream with fruits, granola and mint leaves on top. What could go wrong?" I thought courageously. Well, let me tell you; a lot could go wrong.
So for the not-so skilled kitchen princesses among us, including myself, I made a quick and much easier recipe: Lena Mess, named after the well-known dessert Eton Mess. (Ironically my experience suited this name too well)
